Event description
Develop your skills with our pedestrian mower course for learners.

About this event

A wide range of mowers are used across horticultural and landscape businesses.

With proper training, most pose little risk to either the user or anyone near to the machine.

Our course will give you that training, ensuring you can operate a pedestrian mower safely and efficiently.

When you've completed this course, you'll receive a certificate of competence.

Our course will give you an insight into both safety awareness and risk assessment.

You'll also run through the machine's capabilities and learn how to maintain the

mowers.

After that, you'll gain practical experience, including mowing on slopes.

Course sessions:

  • Legislation
  • General safety
  • Risk assessment
  • Cutting mechanisms
  • Controls and equipment
  • Daily checks
  • Safe methods of operation
  • Working on slopes
  • Transportation
  • Safety with fuel

By the end of the course, you'll be able to:

  • Identify the risks associated with the use of different types of pedestrian mowers
  • Select appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Identify the controls and components
  • Carry out daily checks as indicated in the operator’s manual
  • Carry out pre-start checks
